Mother_Puncher Some Dewey and most Hal moments were golden. Craig was the oddball character used for certain situation. The mom was horrible and Malcolm was the worst character in any show other than Peggy Hill. So a few good characters with good moments really doesn't outshine the fact that the show was based on a whiney piece of shit with mommy issues and his mother who is really the only conflict in the show other than Malcolm's own ego.
CharlesSmith If you dislike Peggy Hill there's no hope for you.
Mother_Puncher She's pretty much written to be disliked. She's so full of herself and almost always wrong about everything she talks about. She's annoying and manipulative. Yeah it's amusing sometimes but most of the time it's just uncomfortable to watch her.
Adramelech This also doubles as a summary of the works of HP Lovecraft.
kingofthenothing Yeah, I learned a lot of these lessons from playing Black and White.
hammsangwich I learned from Black and White is that you can beat your monkey to death and he would come back to life with no consequences.
kingofthenothing Well what I learned was actually kind of frustrating and profound. I'll save you the boring details and hit the highlights:
1. The people in power (the other gods) are the ones who determine how the game is really played, and all this nonsense about freedom to do whatever you want is bullshit. Being a terrible god is much more effective.
2. Telling yourself you'll be a good god and help make people's lives better is also bullshit and it's a painful truth when you finally figure out that you were just a reluctant servant, and not the powertripping badass you thought you were.
3. You never needed the damn creature in the first place. It's just a giant shit monster that gets in your way.
